Re: Problem Moving from a Stop

Hi! Had requested the service advisor to check with Ford if they have any suggestions. The Service Manager opened a Tech Line case, and just got the following TSB. I will be taking it in for them to try. Regards, GHTech The vehicle intermittently not having the transmission engage after backing out ...

Re: Problem Moving from a Stop

Hi!

Just want to add that once this problem occurred while the car was running. I have reversed out of a parking spot, and while the car was still running, put the car into drive. Did not move at all, and took about 5 minutes to start moving.

Thanks,
GHTech

Re: Problem Moving from a Stop

Hi! It happened again. On Friday, I was parked to pick up my son from school, and a school bus turned up and he wanted to park where I was parked (nothing was indicated that it was a bus parking spot). So, when I tried to move the car, it would not move at all. It took about 5 minutes (not exaggerat...

Re: GPS Intermittently Working

OK that works rather well. Fusions are sweet cars. Especially the Energi. The only thing is that I charged up both cars, and the first one felt "sluggish" when I pressed the gas, like a regular car. The second car was charged twice, and on one occasion it felt like an electric car, and the other ti...

Re: GPS Intermittently Working

I bet there's even more to it with a BEV - the dealership probably gets the full $7,500 tax credit. Just like leasing companies get the money. So yeah, they make a ton more money selling the FFE used than they do new. Although all that misses a big cost, the cost of carrying the inventory. Hi EVA! ...

Re: GPS Intermittently Working

Doesn't make sense as a new car loses thousands of dollars in value when you drive it off the lot. I'm guessing there must be some tax advantage or kickback from ford for them losing money having to sell them as used. Hi Triangles! Agreed. They are the largest Ford dealer in the world for a reason....

Re: GPS Intermittently Working

Quick update: They replaced the APIM again, and this one seems correct. The dealer gave a loaner for the first replacement that took 7 days, and another loaner for the second replacement for 10 days. The strangest thing is the both loaners were brand new cars (29 miles and 12 miles) on it. I was tol...

Re: GPS Intermittently Working

triangles wrote:Don't quote me but I think APIM= accessory protocol interface module. It's basically the screen/computer on the dash. It's more or less your interface to the car. I don't think much would stop working without it but you wouldn't be able to change any settings.
Thanks triangles.

Wrong APIM?

Greetings, I have a 2016 FFE that had the GPS acting up (more details at http://www.myfocuselectric.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=4219). I reset the fuse, and the dealer reset the APIM and GPS. Both steps did not fix it. Dealer had Ford on the line, and after some diagnosis, approved a new APIM. Go...
